  1. Do you have any existing crew that come up from Hamilton?
  2. I have noticed that the RPNYC is running a 'crew available' feature, but I was just wondering how many skippers actually use this (including other regattas such as BOI Race Week) as compared to finding crew in other ways (word of mouth etc)?

  4. What's the expected length (days) of the voyage?

    What are these?

    Doesn't help that they built such a fragile boat (especially when compared to ETNZs) . . .

    Coastal Classic

    Okay, here is the situation. I am doing coastal on Thunder. However, I am down in Hamilton. I am busy with university until Thursday morning. The rest of the crew are getting their luggage taken up tomorrow or Wednesday. Therefore, I am looking for someone who is going up Thursday afternoon or Friday before the race who would be able to take up an extra bag. I'm not sure how it would work, but maybe you could leave it in charge of the Opua YC (if they stay open), or drop it off where we are staying (once I find out), or some similar plan so that I have a change of clothes etc when I get up th
